4:03 pm
military to go fight sequence and but i think it's also a lift to zimbabweans because from the looks of things. listed there's been a stop to the family dinners gender that was being propagated to buy buy buy buy buy obama happy and his wife we have extensive coverage of this story for you here on the news pages watching events as they unfold out of johannesburg in south africa before we get let's take it to our correspondent in harare harold harrow i guess everyone wants to know the mugabe's where are they. exactly all people can do right now is take the word of the army that he is safe and that he is in his home matters residence the war veterans gave a press conference earlier and they said that they have taken back the party's i mean if they say they support what the army did they say they want a robert mugabe record removed as president of the country and the leader of the
4:04 pm
rulings on appears party on the streets people are waiting to see if this is going to happen it is harm on the streets some soldiers are about at certain places but people are trying to go about their business as they wait for any news that may develop the stage run newspaper releases special edition that came out literally a few minutes ago and it's showing what the army is telling people here and some other why they did what they did and their argument is that they did it because they just wanted to create order in the ruling party and in the country as well they insist that this is not a coup and they're still calling president mugabe head of states and commander in chief but zimbabweans know it's been a dramatic couple of hours. and i'm easy calm in harare this after confusing scenes on the streets of zimbabwe with a night of unrest as military vehicles rolled in there were also reports that soldiers were seen loading ammunition these developments followed
4:05 pm
a warning on monday that the military would step in if the sacking of candidates they favor within the ruling party didn't stop a statement was read by soldiers on state radio this is not a military takeover and things will return to normalcy. and his family. and the security. we are only targeting criminals around him who are committing crimes that are causing social and economic suffering in the country in order to bring them to justice but this is sparks fear of a military coup even now with all the confusion we do know that the army and said it is so this way and running the country and telling the people what to what to do what to believe and hundley the news taking over their broadcast those are very unusual in other countries we call those the coup. zimbabwe army chief constantine
4:06 pm
a cheering i want earlier this week the military could step in if party pages didn't stop but she was quickly accused of treasonable conduct by the zanu p.f. in a statement he was reacting to the firing of the vice president in a seminar the week before when i got well had close ties to the military and was revered for his revolutionary work in fighting for the country's independence a fight that also boyd president mugabe to power in one nine hundred eighty when i got was removal apparently followed a series of disputes with the first lady grace mugabe her leadership and patience to succeed our ninety three year old husband had triggered infighting within her party she is popular with the sonic youth faction dubbed the g forty but yes ancient contradicts an earlier promise mugabe had made saying only those who fought in zimbabwe's liberation can preside over zimbabwe being fifty two grace is not a war veteran and like of amos and i got one nor the army generals who threatened
4:07 pm
to intervene. there firstly visions would like to govern after her husband but i don't know anything that says that that is illegal and the military moving clearly to start. like a good move to me one of the first announced casualties is the finance minister who the army stated they had to take and despite the military emphasizing the president and his wife are safe these look like trouble times ahead so if this isn't a maybe the beginning of the downfall of robert mugabe i mean how can he carry on doing the job he used to do. that's a lot of people are saying a lot of analysts are now speculating the bobbins know that the regional body said it is very concerned about what's happening in this country they are watching zimbabwe very closely because it is eighty miles is a bit to instability here it will affect other countries so at least our stake
4:08 pm
elated right now they're saying perhaps there will be some kind of mediation efforts brought about by outsiders to get the army the mugabe is and zanu p.f. such as saddam and talking have a peaceful transitional process other people are say maybe to negotiate an exit package for the president of i we can go with some kind of dignity but it is all speculation because until the army says it is a coup it is not he is still the head of state he is still commander in chief as they keep reminding zimbabweans over and over again you keep us posted i'm sure but in the meantime stay close thanks very much all the south african president jacob zuma has spoken directly to robert mugabe to jo'burg my colleague china page what else do we know about that conversation. the most important point that president jacob zuma made was that in that conversation president
4:09 pm
mugabe confirmed that he was in confinement in his house under house arrest if you like but he also said that he was fine and that would seem to reiterate and. the comments made by the time the president and his family were safe but let's just have a little listen to some of the rest of what president zuma had to say. i am hoping that the defense force will not move and do more damage that they would be able to do. the quantization of zimbabwe as well as the people of zimbabwe so that this situation doesn't or beyond. the situation where it is now ten years there is a very big zimbabwean population in south africa what are they saying about this. what we are at the moment is downtown johannesburg and just behind me is the main
4:10 pm
bus stop and this is where zimbabweans going higher and coming into the country this is where they come in this is sort of the main transport hub of life for zimbabweans and conversations we've had with some of the people you know one man said look we're just removing a snake and maybe replacing it with another snake one woman said look i don't want to be here none of my family wants to be here but we have to be here because there just aren't any jobs and zimbabwe and somebody else said look if this is china and let's hope it's a good change in fact any kind of change will be good because zimbabwe is a country just cannot continue as it is at the moment. thanks very much. on politics formally also an advisor to the prime minister morgan chang he joins us from the county of kent in the u.k. . is this good change or bad change. well it
4:11 pm
has to be say that the people of zimbabwe being very long time press created. indeed. by a few years there are people that become despondent believing that people who had to run to is death and therefore one of the key figures of these studies that. are actually looking at these events with some interest and they seem to be excited by the fact that this looks like finally the end of mr mugabe's rule people are not concerned about whether it's a good thing or it's a bad thing they're simply interested in the fact that it provides them with a possibility for something different after thirty seven years with one person in charge of course it also brings its own risks and this is a military system these are people who have supported mugabe for a long time are they bringing anything new that question of course people are not
4:12 pm
willing to confront those issues in this particular point in time being concerned mostly by the fact that they're getting read or at least someone has done something to get rid of person who has caused them so much suffering the but that is seven years mr mugabe has clearly managed to triangulate himself his wife and being in power for more than a political generation two or three political generations now people have a very distinct attitude towards him particularly outside of africa but what was the tipping point in your mind in not so much his relationship with the country as his wife's relationship i mean some people are saying look she just went too far. well i think it's important to understand that there were a lot of people in the senate. also frustrated with the fact that mr mugabe was that willing to give up power when you are a subordinate at some point you also ought to be promoted to get to
4:13 pm
a position of authority that people didn't want to be able to have also wanted to be president and would have been frustrated by the fact that this man was just unwilling to go but they were constrained by conventions and traditions in their party from challenge but of cause the tipping point came when it became apparent that mr mugabe was now moving towards giving is on why the opportunity to succeed him and thereby creating what people are fed into is a mugabe do next and this is what can a lot of people both within and outside the p.f. say it should have been they were opposed by the men and we have expected yourself the men i and we keep presenting yourself that many of you mediated battles she was very aggressive grab whatever he wanted and she basically thought you was about you know and this would be a lot of people within and outside and so when mr mugabe said that he was now
4:14 pm
trying to push for his wife to succeed him this was the last trial all the people inside the p. if we had put a long time supported it and given him respect. what do you think happens to him next i mean can he ever go back to saying i'm robert mugabe i'm the zimbabwean president like it or lump it i mean those those breaches of custom and practice that you're talking about somebody someplace said enough's enough we've got to do something so presumably he's got to think about an exit strategy of some sort it may not involve going to another country it may not involve becoming an international pariah but can it really involve him saying i'm the boss. well you know this is a day that mr mcgovern never imagined. he would rule for ever he thought he was the superior leader and everybody did what he
4:15 pm
eats a should be done but the problem is that you're not going to get to and you forgot that for the past fifteen years or so he has been losing to the opposition research and i have been a big challenge to him the only reason why mr survived is because he has been supported by the military as limited as by people like me to a number of himself and then those same people who are backing him he decides to change the model of the party to dismiss them in favor of his own wife and so of course he has put in so in a position where he's now very vulnerable my view is that the people in the military including myself even though he was disappointed by mr mugabe. and i think you do what you they probably is. money become a residue of respect and sympathy for him that they would not want to mistreating for example in the minute that people like you know mom of
4:16 pm
a dirty was treated when when you know at the end of the regime i think they were trying to give him a dignified exit at this may involve him staying in zimbabwe and going about his you know business all you may have to see and zap i think they'll try and give him an opportunity to direct that dignified exit and so that they don't there's no clash between him and the new generation that will be coming out ok it is alex my guy said we've got to leave it there because we're going to lose the line which i apologize but many thanks for joining us here on the news hour to welcome. those more news and sports to come on this program for you including these ones just horrific that u.s. secretary of state's rex tillerson. crackdown against drinking muslims but he stopped short of calling for sanctions plus.

should donald trump have the power to start a nuclear war for the first time in more than forty years u.s. senators have publicly questioned the power of the president order a nuclear attack the long dormant issues been reignited following trump's outspoken tweets and threats aimed at north korea mike hanna reports now from washington. it's an issue congress has not discussed for decades in the era of president trump though senators are now asking the hard question can the president really order a nuclear attack without any controls. that question is asked more and more by the american people and of course it's fueled by comments made by president trump in regards to north korea they will be met with fire and fury like the world has never seen some experts contend their checks and balances in
4:41 pm
place when i can say that for nuclear decision making at the highest level it's a consultation process and there are senior people involved in that process what would be the case though is it wouldn't be the president alone persuading a single military officer alone on the other side of the telephone there would be a large group of advisers and legal advisors weighing in on this but some senators argue this president does not always accept or indeed seek advice no one can tell the president no not secretaries madness or to listen even general kelly the president's chief of staff can't control the president's twitter tantrums as a result many americans share my fear that the president's bombastic words could turn into nuclear reality but hearing raises more questions than answers and certainly little guidance to be an unease missile silos in north dakota who would
